ah would you come on please.

Ok - so the "editing country club set" "privileged sons and daughters" was meant in some earnestness then?

I'll tell you what I know - editing is not versailles Bill, it is not the n'obless oblige sons of privilege wafting into positions of editing power -

editing is one of the most blanket competitive things I know. When I walk into a new shop I am extremely nervy and minded to perform well, because Bill, editing is, in essence, in its performance, not who you know, or a glad handshake, or drinks at the bar - it can be all those things, but what it is Bill is a raw expression of skill, performance under pressure and communication skills. You could be the son of the king of france, but if you cannot perform on the day - you are toast.

Was Thelma Schoonmaker the daughter of editing royalty? or anyone? She couldn't get union accreditation for years. A mate of mine assisted her in Dublin prepping for a talk she was giving - she was lovely Bill. She was just devoted to her craft. This notion that professionally functional software and the people using it to the best of their extent being a cabal is .. laughable.

its just laughable, and insulting to the basic notion of advancement in what is an utterly meritocratic craft. If you edit like no one else on earth, you will bloody well advance.

this stuff is no good Bill, particularly when allied to a false argument that a buggy expansion of iMovie is an answer to all the world's ills.

Because it is a few hundred dollars cheaper than FCP studio - that with half the software to answer professional scenarios gone?

Apart from anything else, besides the above - this is not particularly good software full stop, its undercooked, buggy, and frankly, to my eye, it is directly designed out of a consumer product with deliberation for the monetisation of that market.
